With the May 17th lifting of restrictions, English hospitality businesses were once again able to welcome customers back indoors. We’re now all pinning our hopes on the next milestone of June 21st being safely reached so the final easing of England's lockdown can commence. With a similar approach happening in Scotland and Wales, we're feeling cautiously optimistic that the UK will have a brighter summer with some degree of normality. And with ‘staycations’ being the buzzword on everyone’s lips right now, we're keeping our fingers crossed for a post-pandemic bounce as the population hopefully gets to embrace some newfound freedoms. 

And don’t forget we're here to support you as your business continues to emerge out of lockdown. Whether you are looking to reduce your overheads or simply need help sourcing an elusive product or service, we're just a phone call or click away. In the meantime, here’s the latest round-up of our supplier news and promotions for May…
